Kenton Cool is one of the world’s leading high-altitude climbers and avid adventurers. He has climbed Mount Everest 17 times, more than any other non-Sherpa climber. He has also summited all of the Seven Summits, the highest peaks on each continent. He is also a highly sought-after mountain guide and motivational speaker.
Cool was born in Slough, England, in 1973. He began climbing at a young age and quickly developed a passion for the sport. In 1996, he suffered a serious fall while rock climbing, shattering both of his heel bones. Despite this setback, he was determined to continue climbing, and he eventually made a full recovery.
In 2008, Cool led Sir Ranulph Fiennes’ expedition to climb Everest. Fiennes, who was 65 at the time, became the oldest person to summit Everest without supplemental oxygen. Cool also led Fiennes on a successful expedition to climb Everest in 2009.
In 2013, Cool became the first person to climb Nuptse, Everest, and Lhotse in a single push without returning to base camp. This is a remarkable achievement, as all three peaks are over 8,000 meters high and require a great deal of stamina and skill to climb.
Cool is a highly respected member of the climbing community. He is known for his expertise, dedication to safety, and positive attitude. He is also a passionate advocate for environmental conservation and education.
In addition to his climbing achievements, Cool is also a successful author and motivational speaker. He has written two books about his experiences, and he regularly gives talks to businesses and organizations about his leadership and teamwork skills.
